With the development of the game world, the world’s largest companies have also partnered with many studios or distributors. Sweden-based media outlet GLHF claimed that Amazon made an official offer to buy Electronic Arts (EA), the developer of Apex Legends, FIFA series, Madden, and many more games.
Amazon is reportedly trying to buy Electronic Arts
Others decided to incorporate these companies directly into their own structure. A big claim has been made about EA in the last months when giants such as Bethesda and Activision were bought one after another. Some names from GLHF, one of the bridge companies between the game industry and the media, suggested that Electronic Arts will be purchased soon.
It was previously discussed who could buy Electronic Arts if it sold. Among these names, Apple, Disney, and Amazon stood out. According to the sources, Amazon finally submitted an offer to Electronic Arts for the purchase. However, the details of this offer have not been disclosed yet.
Amazon has made many improvements in Prime Video lately. The success of productions such as The Witcher and Arcane on Netflix made it necessary for Amazon to do similar moves. By purchasing Electronic Arts, the company can focus on the series and movie series of productions such as Mass Effect, Dragon Age, and Dead Space.
The big game production companies changing hands and the big technology companies being among the biggest companies exploded after Microsoft bought Bethesda for $7.5 billion. This isn’t the first time acquisition rumors have swirled around EA. Earlier this year in January, it was revealed by Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick that his company had considered a merger with EA, effectively joining forces as one massive entity, prior to Microsoft acquiring Activision Blizzard.
GLHF and other media organizations, the source of the news, state that the announcement about the official purchase attempt can be made from today. Finally, let’s state that we will learn after the official announcement whether the purchase includes all or part of EA.
